Poem: Zionist Liquidation Squads Melt Down

Zionist Liquidation Squads Melt Down

By Genevieve Cora Fraser

As the Palestinian world folds
Into a chasm of despair and destruction
An Israeli soldier draws his gun
To kill shots fired in rapid succession
Syncopate with the dull drone and thud
Of a bulldozer plowing fields of hate
For generations to come Israeli
Madness courts disaster as the troops
Press onward into the bowels
Of contempt they will not repent
Lives are spent as fodder to military
Might that is the throbbing heart
Of Israel perpetually in a state
Of victimization and condemnation
Of everyone but themselves
Unable to see their hatred projected
Outward at those who stare back
They press forward to the kill
Palestinian knowledge of belonging
Trumps Zionists pretence to rights
If only Israel embraced the cause
Of a Brotherhood of equals
Unable, unwilling, Israeli soldiers
Press on as the world prepares
Sanctions they prepare laws
To entrap anyone who dares
Ensnare them Anti-Semite
Anti-Semite look how you
Make me suffer we will rid
The world of you trapped
In a net of their own creation
Zionist forces strip the landscape
Of a life worth living rip open
Wounds of division in an attempt
To divide and conquer and vanquish
An enemy that can only be found
